[applause] i know plenty of them and they struggle. picture this. you are a single parent, but you have to come up with a way how to feed your family, work at the same time to pay bills, and go to school to get an education to better your life. last year, i only made $8,000 the whole year. my food stamps were cut. that was the only way i was able to feed my son, $85 a month. the average family spends close to $500 or more. you expect me to spend $85 and live with that for

will examine why we cheat. the psychology, the science, all of that. don't miss the "cnn newsroom" special report this afternoon at 3:00 eastern. >>> and now, today's other headline, and it is also a sport story, and it is also very bizarre. a little confusing. trust me, a lot of us shaking our heads about it, too, and we don't even have the, the full story. it's about this guy. superstar of the notre dame fighting irish football program. this name is manti te'o, heisman runner-up, rock star linebacker. the last three years of his love life sound a little like a cheesy romantic comedy. all that time, three years. looks like he's been involved in an elaborate story of love, lies and heartbreaking loss. even told reporters about the tragic loss of the love of his life, quote/unquote, and her inspiration that drove him to win on the football field. heren the thing. it's all hogwash. turns out there's no girlfriend. no. there was no tragic and inspiring death of said girlfriend in respect was nothing. this whole thing was made up. supposedly. and i've got someone in here to help me make heads

isn't rocket science. it's just common sense. from td ameritrade. >>> welcome back. the futures are indicated higher. in fact picked up quite a bit of steam. at this point the dow futures are up 52 points, let's get down to the new york stock exchange. jim cramer joins us now. we've had good economic numbers that came out that spurred things, but a lot of news on the big stocks, too. the financials are out this morning. why don't we start off talking a bit about boeing. we've had several analysts on this morning. the question is, what you do you do with the stock while you wait to hear more information about what's really happening? >> headline risk continues. remember the stock was between 69 and 70 for quite a long time. people were hoping for a big different boost, i don't know if that can happen. there was a great airbus conference call this morning on between 4:15 and quarter of 5:00. those guys are smoking it. i think what's going to happen is eventually there will be order cancellations. i don't buy that. i don't want to buy boeing, but i don't buy the end of boeing story

cannot find the sciences and mathematicians in the u.s. there are family farms that have shut down. others have moved to mexico because they cannot find the workers. the whole economy is suffering because we cannot grow without immigration. we are steering in the face of a potential great stimulus without it costing at trillion dollars. we have also seen the human complexity of immigration intensified. the kids to have been born here to undocumented parents, the kids who came here when there were four or five years old. parents who have worked in a job for 15 years and are hoping this is their future, that they can be part of the american dream. every single day, it becomes more complicated. until lawmakers act, president, the congress, we are allowed in this humanitarian situation to golan. it strikes me as so un american that we ignore it. ignoring the problem does not make the problem go away. there has been a consensus, i believe, that two things are not going to happen. on one hand, we are not going to run the 12 million people and keep them out of the country. -- ralph up 12

lives. we don't benefit from ignorance. we don't benefit from not knowing the science of this epidemic of violence. these are a few of the 23 executive actions that i'm announcing today. but as important as these steps are, they are in know no way a substitute for action from members of congress. to make a real and lasting difference, congress too must act. and congress must act soon. and i'm calling on congress to pass some very specific proposals right away. first it's time for congress to require a universal background check for anyone trying to buy a gun. [applause] the law already requires licensed gun dealers to run background check and over the last 14 years that's kept 1.5 million of the wrong people from getting their hands on a gun. but it's hard to enforce that law when as many as 40% of all gun purchases are conducted without a background check. that's not safe, that's not smart, that's not fair to responsible gun buyers or sellers. if you want to buy a gun, whether it's from a licensed dealer or a private seller, you should at least have to show you are not a felon or some
